Tuesday Trigger: Rainbow Bright

Posted by on June 17, 2011 in Challenges, Cuttlebug, Distress inks, Happy Birthday Cards, Hero Arts, Nestabilities, Stamping | 9 comments


When I saw this week’s Tuesday Trigger in Moxie Fab World, I knew I had to give it a go. I love bright colours.

I used these fabulous colours in the order they appear to create my colourful background. I cut thin strips, distressed them with distress inks and them stamped the Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design in the same distress ink over the top. Easy peasy.

A close up of the ribbon flowers and sentiment.


Stamps: Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design (CG245), Waltzing Mouse “Teeny Trees” stamp set – Birthday Wishes sentiment
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Broken China, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, Versafine Ink – Onyx Black
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured square single fold), White Bazzill card
Other Supplies: Ribbon Roses (Wedding Gift Favors – I found these in a bargain discount shop), Kaisercraft Pearls – snow, Kaisercraft white grosgrain ribbon, Zots Adhesive dots, Blending Tool, Spellbinders labels Four die, Cuttlebug.

Hope you likey as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by,

  3. This is awesome! I love it. 😉

  4. Brilliant card – love your tone on tone idea. So obvious when you see it but something I’ve only done with one colourway for a background. I love the way it all comes together and looks so clean and effortless.

  5. This is beautiful, Marion! Very clean and crisp with the white accents and sentiment 😉

  6. Saw this in the Hero Arts Flickr Gallery and had to click on over … absolutely gorgeous.
